The new update for “The Division,” dubbed Patch 1.02, has already been deployed, and it brings a couple of new things while shutting down others. Following the server maintenance for the game, there may now be better loot and some changes on gameplay.

Over at the official “The Division” website, Ubisoft detailed the changes, starting with better loot dropping in Challenge mode via named enemies. NPCs were also changed so they no longer respawn after being killed in the Open World to avoid players killing the same NPCs several times.

The Trained weapon talent has also been modified so it can only be rolled on Shotgun, Marksman rifles and Pistols. Additionally, its bonus has been nerfed from somewhere within the range of one to five percent to only 0.1 percent. Trained Talent will also be replaced by other weapon talents in other gears.

The infamous Dark Zone has also seen a few changes, starting with healing for neutral players using First Aid and Support Station skills. Killing players in the Dark Zone will drop ammo, medkits and grenade, which are generated as new ones. However, being killed in the Dark Zone will mean less Dark Zone Funds and Experience,

Previously, the developer had aimed to increase the Phoenix Credit drops on level 31 and 32 enemies in the Dark Zone. However, it appears that there were a couple of stability issues that occurred with the change, causing the developer to remove it in the meantime and add it to the next patch. Still, for level 31 and 32 named NPCs, players can get more High-end Items and High-End Division Tech Materials as their drop rate has been increased.

For those who are hunting for Dark Zone Chests, the quality have been improved as Rank 30 chests now contain Superior Items instead of just Specialised ones. Also, players now have a chance to get High-End items in Key chests.

“The Division” patch 1.02 also delivers a lot of bug fixes, particularly for UI, audio, localisation, as well as some platform-specific changes. These can be seen in full via the link above.

Ubisoft has also fixed the exploit that “The Division” players have spotted in the game. GameSpot reported that the farmable area, Autumn’s Hope safe house, is a hot location in “The Division” as it is the place to spawn and get as many Phoenix Credits as possible. Anyone who is at level 30 can do the exploit, where one will spawn in the Autumn’s Hope safe house, killed a named boss in the area, die and respawn.

To commemorate “The Division” version of the Loot Cave, Ubisoft has even given a last hurrah to the boss who had been killed time and again in “The Division” for the exploit, seen in the link above.
